How to Make Homemade Blueberry Pancakes

Pancake is an all time favorite, be it for breakfast or snacks. It can be plain or with your favorite fruit toppings. There’s no better way but to have it homemade. Cooking pancakes at home gives you the freedom to experiment on what fruits to mix or toppings to add to make it more delicious and most importantly, nutritious. A variation of this is Blueberry Pancake. Blueberries with its indigo coloring are sweet-tart-tasting and has spicy aroma. They are great tasting and packed with vitamins and minerals and very high in fiber and have less saturated fat and sodium. They are rich in vitamins C, A and E and also rich in minerals like magnesium, manganese and potassium. Recent studies revealed that among the many fruits, blueberries provide the most when it comes to anti-oxidants. We are aware that these anti-oxidants are the elements that help prevent cancer-causing cells in our bodies. Blueberries are readily available fresh or frozen or in cans though bit pricey.

Here’s a recipe for homemade Blueberry pancake. Cook it alone or with the kids and enjoy each step from scratch to finish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries, mashed
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 level teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • milk (for thicker pancakes use a little less milk)

Procedure:

  1. Combine altogether the mashed blueberries, flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, eggs, vanilla and melted butter in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk in the milk until the lumps are gone for its consistency.
  3. Place a large skillet over a medium heat and coat with a cooking spray.
  4. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface of the batter.
  5. Flip using a spatula and cook until golden brown. If it is browning too quickly reduce heat or turn off for a second. If skillet or pan turns dry coat again with a cooking spray. Normally the first pancake is not as better as the second and the succeeding when it comes to appearance. Pancakes should be golden brown on both sides when cooked.

This makes 5 to 6 servings.

Another way is to sprinkle the desired amount of thawed blueberries on the surface then flip when large bubbles appear and cook until golden brown.

Blueberries can also be used as toppings together with whipped cream. My kids love it with honey and blueberries. This is one pancake that is so irresistible. You can have fruit variations with pancake and they are always a big hit especially for the kids.
